ALL ACCESS is pleased to report that legendary CBS Classic Hits KRTH (K-EARTH 101)/LOS ANGELES afternoon-driver "SHOTGUN TOM" KELLY is resting comfortably in a SAN DIEGO hospital, following quadruple bypass surgery this past SATURDAY (3/8).
During a visit to his doctor last week, KELLY complained of some discomfort in his chest. He went in for an angioplasty, which upon further diagnosis, became the more extensive quadruple bypass operation.
KRTH PD RICK THOMAS told ALL ACCESS on SUNDAY (3/9), "I was so happy hear from 'SHOTGUN TOM' this morning. He was in great spirits on the phone and sounded remarkable. I am so happy to hear he's doing so well from him personally and that he's expected to make a full recovery. TOM is a beloved member of our staff and we just want him to take some much-needed time to chill. We love you 'SHOTGUN TOM' -- get better!"
